Time is flying!
It’s crazy to think that it’s been over 6 months since I first decided to take on this challenge, and in that time again I will be (fingers crossed) approaching the top of Mount Kilimanjaro!
So far I’ve ticked off my running challenge with the Adidas Silverstone Half Marathon, and I hope to do a couple more 10K runs to keep up my general fitness and because now I’ve got some PBs I want to beat :o)
I’ve started my walking training with a couple of walks (most recently a windy South West coast walk in Devon this weekend) and plenty more planned, including a trip to Snowdonia and a vague plan for Ben Nevis. Also on the agenda are plenty of Box Hill laps and some flatter West London walks.
Fundraising is starting to ramp up with some donations coming in but I still have a long way to go! I am in the process of organising a pub quiz in central London and a couple of other events / raffles etc – details to follow.
I’ve realised I still have quite a long shopping list as far as kit goes. In fact, the only things I have purchased are my boots and some fleece lined walking trousers, so there’s plenty of shopping (/begging/borrowing/
stealing) to be done over the next few months!
